Cincinnati Zoo Collection Two

Cincinnati Zoo Collection Two

I’m moving onto my second collection of animal pictures at the Cincinnati Zoo. The first was a lot of fun and so I am going to move forward on this project. Overall it was a great shooting day. We arrived for early admission and left when it started warming up around noon. On our way out the line for tickets was the longest I’ve ever seen it, stretching back across the bridge and to the escalators up from the parking lot. I’m still not sure why more people don’t get passes to the Zoo, they are quite a value.

Overall great pics with active animals. My only complaint, which is totally my fault, was when my DSLR fell off my carrying strap and the protective lens cracked. I just didn’t do a good enough job of cranking down the screw on the carrying plate. For the time being I’ve ordered a new outer lens but I’m not sure about the state of the overall unit. I really hope it’s not trashed.

My collection so far is getting close to capturing all of the primates/monkeys. There are a few still hiding that I’ll try to get next, and then mark off the big cats.

Here are the animals on this list:

  • Cheetah
  • White Handed Gibbon
  • Sumatran Orangutan
  • Mueller’s Gibbon
  • Lesser Kudu
  • Impala
